Kirsten Reinhardt is a German writer mostly of children\'s books who lives in Berlin. She studied literature, theatre and journalism. Fennymore and the Brumella (published in German by Carlsen as Fennymores Reise) is her first book. It won the Oldenburger prize for children’s literature in 2009, before it was even published and has also been translated into French. She\'s written another children\'s book published in German since then, but she\'s pretty busy right now looking after two small children of her own.
